Raimond Roger Trencavel, viscount of Carcassonne, Beziers, the Razes and Alby was the most fascinating hero of Occitan independence.  Alone, he stood against the rush of the Northern knights in 1209 during the crusade against the Cathars or Albigensians.
 
When he went to Montpellier and stood before the assembly of crusaders -presided over by the papal legate- and was invited to chase the heretics and deliver them, Raimond Roger declared:
 
"I offer a town, a roof, a shelter, bread and my sword to all the persecuted people who will soon be wandering in Provence, without a town, or roof, or place of refuge, or bread."*
 
 
The aim of the Trencavel Association is to rehabilitate and bring to the knowledge of an International public (through documents, conferences, debates, exhibitions, shows and medias), the action of the Trencavel family over the centuries and also that of the characters who relate to their story, and more particularly to recall the life of its most famous member:  Raimond Roger Trencavel -1185 -1209).
